Apró alma lehullott (1924)

Apró alma lehullott

Apró alma lehullott a sárba,
Ki fëlszëdi, nem marad hëjába,
Én fëlszëdëm, kimosom, eltëszëm,
S a rózsámat igazán szeretëm.
Cifra bunda szëgre van akasztva,
Szaladj rózsám akaszd a nyakamba,
Hagy járjuk el azt a csárdás táncot,
Fejérváron zërgetik a láncot.

From the tree a tiny apple fell

From the tree a tiny apple fell,
He who finds it picks it up:
I pick it up, wash it, put it away.
I love my sweetheart so dearly.
A beautiful fur coat hangs there
My sweetheart hangs it round my neck.
We dance a gay csárdas,
But heavy chains rattle in Fejérvár.
